The Force sensor uses a strain gauge bonded to a high tensile strength beam and is used to measure compression and extension forces applied perpendicular to the beam.
All our sensors are supplied with 5 years warranty and lifetime support.
The sensor comes with accessories to use with the most common investigations. The hook is used with the spring for simple harmonic motion investigations, with stretchy rubber for bungee jumping, and with stiff wire for investigating centripetal force in a pendulum. The cushioned and non-cushioned stops are used when investigating collisions and crumple zones, where a cart on a ramp collides with the sensor.
The Force Sensor can be used to investigate a number of scientific experiments such as:
